Could the IAAF World Championships be returning to North America? The event has visited Canada once - with Edmonton playing host in 2001 - but Eugene, Oregon has placed a bid for the 2019 Championships. If successful, Eugene would bring the outdoor World Championships to the United States for the first time. The U.S. played host to the World Indoor Championships in 1987, while Toronto brought the World Indoors to Canada in 1993. The outdoor World Championships will be held in Beijing in 2015 and London in 2017. Doha, Qatar and Barcelona, Spain have also bid for the 2019 Championships. A decision is due in November.
